to block chuck hagel, the current defense secretary leon panetta is on his way out. they gave mr. panetta his sendoff on saturday, though it looks like he'll probably be in charge for another week or so. his time has been a period of lasting change for the u.s. military. after the end of the iraq war, he has overseen the beginning of the end of america's longest war ever in afghanistan. the clinton era policy of "don't ask, don't tell" ended under leon panetta's watch, at his recommendation that the nation allow openly gay people to be a part of the military. last year secretary panetta took steps to reform the way the military deals with sexual assault in its ranks, going as far in those reforms as he could without help from congress. he also opened new assignments in the military, new roles for female soldiers. last month, with the end of his term near, he proclaimed an end to the ban on women in combat, full stop. well, today in a new memo, the outgoing defense secretary, leon panetta, made another historic change, saying that discrimination based on sexual orientation no longer has a

the white house and from the administration, and when you look back at panetta's last week in the hearing when he said he called the president at 5:00 and didn't touch base with him again. it's a fallout from the president being too focused on the election, not taking care of the embassador and our folks out there in benghazi that unfortunately had to die because of this. >> chris, do you think it's the president's fault, that he was too focused on the election and didn't do anything else that night? >> you know, i think it's easy to be -- it's a cheap shot. the reality is and the administration has been clear, mistakes were made. secretary -- former secretary of state clinton testified multiple times, she talked about what happened. there was -- she took responsibility for this terrible event. there was an investigation independent in terms of what happened and how to prevent it from happening. it seems strange at this moment that senator graham is decide to go put a hold on this. to be honest, my opinion, it has more to do with the fact there's a serious division between former senator
defense secretary leon panetta tonight. he spoke at the military's farewell tribute today in virginia and credited panetta with accomplishing one of his administration's greatest achievements. >> your leadership of the cia will forever be remembered for the blows that we struck against al qaeda and perhaps the greatest intelligence success in american history. delivering justice to osama bin laden. president obama nominated former nebraska senator chuck hagel to replace panetta. the senate recently postponed its vote on hagel's nomination. >>> we hope you are not heading to the northeast region. you can't get there at this point, right, doug? >> you really can't. i-95 not looking too bad. new york city, a lot of wet roadways, the snow coming down. not too heavy now. it's expected to increase over the next couple of hours. our weather, not bad here either just yet. over the next few hours, our weather will deteriorate as the winds pick up. 42 degrees right now. a few showers around. most down to the south. again, 7:00 p.m., 38 degrees. maybe just a couple of showers. 9:00 windy with te
. yesterday senator lindsey graham grilled leon panetta for the obama's administration lack of leadership on the night four americans died, only to learn in fact that our commander in chief, barack obama, did nothing to help the victims that night. now last senate senator graham was on the program and reacted to that exchange right here. >> if i were a family member, and one of my loved ones was killed in benghazi, i would be sick to my stomach. the president of the united states talked to the secretary of defense for 15 minutes, never talked to the secretary of state until after the attack was over. never made a phone call saying how close are we to help these people? where is chris stevens? what did he do when he was told the ambassador was missing? we've had one ambassador killed in the last 30 years. the president of the united states has to account for his leadership here. i intend to hold him accountable. thus far the white house has delayed, denied, deceived and stonewalled, and this has to come to an end. he has to account for his leadership. >> sean: joining me now with a lesson
: the pentagon facing sweeping budget cuts which lefers secretary leon panetta would be a threat to our security. >> i don't want to see taxes increased but i would like to see the president call the leaders over to the white house and say, look, we have got to solve this problem. outgoing secretary of defense, leon panetta, is one of the most widely respected persons in washington, d.c. he's saying this will devastate tour security. republicans and democrats are responsible for this new cliff. and i'll take responsibility for the republicans but we have got to stop it, we have to avoid it. bill: you are going to hold a hearing tomorrow on these cuts. what is your best solution? >> i believe the cuts are going to happen. the president is insistent on tax increases or cuts and i think he gets spending cuts, about half of them are in the military. the best solution is let the defense department target those cuts rather than take across the board cuts. i think they will happen. i'm not going to be for tax increases and i suspect there will be no taxes. bill: just to be clear, the sequestration will
leon panetta. boy, a blistering attack against congress. can't wait to talk to jane about that. also, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, brea

defense secretary leon panetta. as jacqueline fell reports congress is focusing on the next cia director and whether john brennan supports using drones for targeted killings. >> reporter: pam, john brennan says that drone strikes are used only against targets who plan to attack the united states. brennan told senate intelligence committee led by dianne feinstein that drone strikes are never used as retro abuse for an earlier attack against americans. he says americans deserve to learn more about the procedures and practices for drones and targeted killings. republican senators want to know if brennan would rather kill terrorists with a drone or capture them. >> i never believe it's better to kill a terrorist than detain him. we want to detain as many terrorists as possible. >> reporter: another big topic of the day information sharing. senators complain they don't share enough classified information with them while sharing too much with the media. some republicans accused brennan and the cia of offering authorized leaks to help president obama in the when i see you next in a warning com

secretary defense panetta who said, look, this is not a game. this is reality. he said there's going to be furloughs at the pentagon, the pay increases for the troops will not be as large as he would like, and then the president today added on to them, said, look, this is going to affect seniors, food safety, the poor. so what they are setting themselves up for is really this argument they are set to have and i think we're going to hear from the state of the union, over these automatic spending cuts that are due to take effect. the president is saying, we cannot let this occur and he's ready to clearly have that fight with republicans on this. >> panetta leaving office with an extraordinary acknowledgement that the defense department, the cia, state department, all of them recommended to the president that the u.s. should start arming, directly arming syrian rebels but the president decided that was not necessarily a good idea. that's pretty extraordinary. >> it was extraordinary. he was asked about it at a congressional hearing. what is interesting to me is someone who covers washin
